Lucrative social events

In 2019 we went to 2 dreamy luxury clothing swaps organized by Haulternative Closet & Stories Behind Things here in London and omg it was not only so much fun but we were very successful! Our preloved gems included Clark loafers, an Urban Outfitters bomber jacket, Navyboot Switzerland leather boots, a H&M cropped top, 2 jeans & we traded them in for new treasures such as a vintage cropped jeans jacket, a Jaeger Official cashmere cardigan, a NEW Monki dress & top, a NEW H&M skirt, a Topshop blouse and much more.

While sometimes you can wait ages for your stuff to sell online, swap your clothes to get immediately "new" ones. Enjoy mingling with like-minded swappers and browse all the preloved gems whilst sipping a cocktail of your choice. Also, I honestly first thought I would feel sad donating my preloved gems, but that was completely overshadowed by the sheer joy I felt spotting a girl, ‘purchasing’ an Urban Outfitters bomber jacket I had bought 1 year year ago and worn a total of three times.

So how does a swap clothing party work? Just bring items you deem as high quality to switch, receive tokens in exchange for your pieces and start exploring the curated rails of new unsold stock of brands, second hand and vintage clothes to find new things to welcome into your life.

The amazing thing about clothing swap pop-up events is also the fact that among the heavily curated rails is a mix of high street and high-end designer dead stock, overproduced lines and samples which can be swapped with your pre-loved gems. Join us to our next swishing party on the 2nd of April organized by @haulternativeclosed or by The Big Clothes Switch who collaborates with over 15 brands and We Work (date tbd).

Ok, so now before you think such events are not happening in your hometown - don't worry we have got the solution for you. Read below the online alternatives for you!

Swopped

Swopped takes all the difficult stuff out of swapping clothes with other people. Simply package up your item and send it to their headquarters. They’ll let you know when they have it. Once they have your item they’ll put the credits in your account ready to spend in their beautiful store.

Swancy or Swapsy

Swancy and Swapsy are exciting ways to get your hands on new items of clothing while also being kind to the planet for free. All you have to do is download the apps, upload your pictures of your items and find other pieces you want to swap with. Both apps work in a Tinder-like style, where you swipe left if you want to skip and swipe right for an item you want to have.

see app

Eventbrite

As well as swapping via a website or app, you can alternatively set up a clothes swap in your local area. I know I know you may have not enough time to organise one by yourself. Ultimately, just check on Eventbrite (world's largest ticketing and event platform) where the closest clothing swap parties are held. I bet you will find one close to your place! My absolute favourite ones are Stories Behind Things, Haulternative Closet Clothes Swap and Swap Rebellion (set up officially a swap pop-up at the latest London Fashion Week together with The Swap Chain) in London and the Swiss Walk-in Closet in Switzerland.

Vinted

Join the world's biggest pre-loved fashion marketplace. As well as giving users the opportunity to sell second-hand clothing, Vinted also enables people to swap clothes with one another if they wish. Instead of buying brand new clothes, it encourages everyone to purchase and swap items to help the environment.
